Twice a month, Reason Center (RC) and AOF host aFree Movie Night just for you. An excellent MPLC License makes it legal & legit. Alas, the License prohibits us from naming the movie here. But we can hint.
This one is a 2015 documentary about the anti-cult crusade of Ted 'Black Lightning' Patrick and his practice of "deprogramming" (aka "reverse brainwashing"). His crusade, which began in the early 1970s, snowballed into a vast underground movement composed of concerned parents, ex-cultists and sympathetic law-enforcers, but has received its own share of criticism. If you really must know the film name, contact Reason Center (see below) -- they'll tell you, then you can tell the world.
Movie Nights are informal, picnic-style family events. The venue has a large silver screen and a dynamic sound system. Chairs are available but may be a bit rough for a two-hour sit, so it's OK to bring blankets, pillows, lawn chairs and your own snacks & beverage, non-alcoholic please. RC often provides fluffy, buttery theater popcorn. Children are welcome if they're cool children -- and if you judge the movie appropriate for tender eyes & ears. (Also, remember: the taller your personal chair, the further back you will sit.)
Movie Night was made for Reason Center members, but non-members are welcome too. RC may beg or wheedle a small voluntary donation to cover costs. How can you become a Reason Center member?
